Murphy & Attridge

Lewis Murphy & Laura Attridge

Since meeting at the Royal College of Music in 2013, composer Lewis Murphy and writer Laura Attridge have quickly established themselves as one of the most exciting young creative partnerships on the opera scene today. Together, they aim to bring to the stage stories which respond directly to the modern world and are accessible to a diverse audience.

Their ever-growing project portfolio as a duo already includes commissions from Glyndebourne and Scottish Opera, as well as unique workshops for young composers and writers in the art of collaboration with The Royal Northern College of Music and The Writing Squad. They wrote a bespoke aria for one of the Young Artists at the National Opera Studio as part of the organisation’s 12:40 project, which premiered in June 2018. Their latest opera was a new commission for the Royal Opera House’s Youth Opera Company, which premiered in the Linbury Theatre in August 2019. 2020 has seen their innovative charitable song project, Notes From Isolation, launch online, including performances from singers such as Nicky Spence, Natalya Romaniw and Dame Felicity Lott.

Murphy & Attridge look forward to the premieres of two new operas in 2021, full details to be announced.  You can find details of their joint portfolio here.
